Book Description :

Consumers are advised to increase fruit and vegetable consumption, but the health effects of increased intake are not fully understood. This important collection brings together information on the health-promoting properties of fruit and vegetables. Introductory chapters provide an overview of fruit and vegetable bioactives and consumer attitudes towards fruit and vegetables. Part two discusses the health effects of fruit and vegetables in relation to specific diseases, including cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity and neurodegenerative diseases. The focus in Part three is on understanding fruit and vegetable phytochemicals. Chapters cover physiological and ecological functions and biosynthesis of health-promoting compounds in fruit and vegetables, rapid analysis of phytochemicals in fruit and vegetables and clinical evidence for biological activity of fruit and vegetable phytochemicals. Part four chapters review the effect of pre- and post-harvest technologies on the health-promoting properties of fruit and vegetables. Topics covered include traditional breeding and modern processing techniques and their effect on fruit and vegetable phytochemicals; genetic manipulation of vegetable crops to alleviate diet-related diseases; agronomy and the nutritional quality of fruit; storage and handling of fruit and vegetables for optimal health-related quality and postharvest enhancement of bioactive compounds in fresh produce using abiotic stresses. The final chapters in Part five look at the nutritional quality of particular fruit and vegetable products, such as fresh-cut fruit and vegetables and organic fruit and vegetables. Improving the health-promoting properties of fruit and vegetable products is a valuable reference for those working in the fresh and processed fruit and vegetable sector of the food industry. Provides an overview of fruit and vegetable bioactives Discusses the health effects of fruit and vegetables in relation to specific diseases Reviews the impact of agronomy, post-harvest treatments and processing on the nutritional quality of fresh fruit and vegetables

Book Description :

Nutraceuticals and Functional Foods is a component of Encyclopedia of Food and Agricultural Sciences, Engineering and Technology Resources in the global Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems (EOLSS), which is an integrated compendium of twenty one Encyclopedias. The present series on “Nutraceuticals and Functional Foods” focuses on the health-promoting properties of fruits and their active components involved in the prevention of chronic diseases. A world-class group of academic researchers and scientists wrote these chapters to provide state-of-the-art reviews. The nine chapters in this book provide an integrated picture of the health beneficial properties of functional foods. Chapters 1-3 address the health benefits of commonly consumed beverages such as tea, coffee, and fruit juices. Chapters 4-8 deal with the nutraceutical properties of major and highly consumed fruits, including pomegranates, citrus, grapes, kiwifruits, annona, and berries. In addition, these chapters discuss consumer interest in naturally colored foods with regard to absorption, metabolism, and antioxidant capacity, followed by the causes of inflammatory diseases and diabetes, as well as various biological activities that can overcome these health concerns. Chapter 9 presents the heart health benefits of plant sterols, these compounds found naturally in whole grains, nuts, oil seeds and legumes as well as fruits, and are structurally similar to cholesterol and can reduce total and LDL cholesterol levels in humans. Thus, this series comprehensively describes the basic information that will be useful for scientists, researchers, teachers, and consumers. This volume is aimed at the following major target audiences: University and College Students, Educators, Professional Practitioners, and Research Personnel.

Book Description :

Fruit and vegetables are both major food products in their own right and key ingredients in many processed foods. There has been growing research on their importance to health and techniques to preserve the nutritional and sensory qualities desired by consumers. This major collection summarises some of the key themes in this recent research. Part one looks at fruit, vegetables and health. There are chapters on the health benefits of increased fruit and vegetable consumption, antioxidants and improving the nutritional quality of processed fruits. Part two considers ways of managing safety and quality through the supply chain. A number of chapters discuss the production of fresh fruit and vegetables, looking at modelling, the use of HACCP systems and ways of maintaining postharvest quality. There are also two chapters on instrumentation for measuring quality. Two final chapters look at maintaining the safety and quality of processed fruit and vegetables. Part three reviews technologies to improve fruit and vegetable products. Two chapters consider how to extend the shelf-life of fruits and vegetables during cultivation. The following three chapters then consider how postharvest handling can improve quality, covering minimal processing, new modified atmosphere packaging techniques and the use of edible coatings. Two final chapters discuss two major recent technologies in processing fruit and vegetables: high pressure processing and the use of vacuum technology. With its distinguished editor and international team of contributors, Fruit and vegetable processing provides an authoritative review of key research on measuring and improving the quality of both fresh and processed fruits and vegetables. Reviews recent research on improving the sensory, nutritional and functional qualities of fruit and vegetables, whether as fresh or processed products Examines the importance of fruits and vegetables in processed foods and outlines techniques to preserve the nutritional and sensory qualities desired by consumers Discusses two major technologies in processing fruits and vegetables: high pressure processing and the use of vacuum technology

Book Description :

The use of dietary vegetables and medicinal herbs to improve health is a phenomenon that is taking society by storm. Herbal products are now a multi-billion dollar business. Even more important, this business is built upon extremely little research data. The FDA is pushing the industry-with Congress' help- to base their claims and products on scientific phenomena. Vegetables, Fruits, and Herbs in Health Promotion discusses the most effective ways of conducting research geared toward deriving maximum nutritional benefit from vegetables, fruits, and herbs. The book addresses such questions as: o How much vegetables and herbs should be consumed? o Can extracts or components be useful replacements for vegetable consumption? o Does red wine reduce the risk of heart disease, and if so, what are the active agents and mechanisms? Increased consumption of vegetables and herbs promotes health, increases longevity, and reduces the risk of cancer and heart disease. Vegetables, Fruits, and Herbs in Health Promotion is an invaluable reference for providing you with the knowledge necessary for fostering positive changes in dietary habits.
